The Word "Love"

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: We use the word love so casually.

“I love pizza.”

Nancy: In English we describe some very different things with the same word.

“I love this car.”

Nancy: The New Testament is more precise and uses several different words for the concept of love. It uses one Greek word for romantic love, another for friendship, and another word—agape—to represent the love God shows us.

Someone has described agape love as totally giving of myself to meet the needs of another person without expecting anything in return. God has poured this love out on us, and He calls us to show agape love to each other. That doesn’t come naturally. But when we ask God to love other people through us, He will.

Are you showing God’s love today? Giving of yourself without expecting anything in return?

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
